Like InuYasha? People will frequently ask him if he is half-human and half-dog demon and if his half-brother's name is Sesshomaru. Even if little Yasha's half-brother is named Matthew or similar, people may start calling him Sesshomaru. It's possible that they might also ask Yasha where Kagome is and yell "Sit boy!" at him when he is being non-compliant or getting on their nerves.
